With five games under its belt (2-3), the men’s basketball team is in full swing with high expectations for the season. Coming off a 83-70 loss against Colby (5-1) yesterday, the team will face Pine Manor (1-6) on Saturday in Morell Gym at 1 p.m.
Just hours after celebrating the holidays with their families, Bowdoin’s basketball players were conditioning for NESCAC conference games in the tropics of Florida. Their hard work paid off as the team returned from break with two wins this past weekend, beating Colby 83-77 after losing to the Mules in a close non-conference game earlier this season, and beating Pine Manor 73-67.
Many athletes at Bowdoin become close with their teammates and other athletes, but for basketball players Lydia Caputi ’18 and Blake Gordon ’18, their friendship began far before Bowdoin. Gordon and Caputi have been next door neighbors since the time they were four and five years old, respectively.
